Opiate of the People

Opiate of the People


This should be self explanatory. We all have a certain degree of ambivalence about the role that technology plays in our lives.

Text reads “opiate of the people of the opiate of the people….” etc.

“Soma” is the fictional hallucinogenic drug, featured in Aldous Houxley’s “Brave New World”, which kept society sedated and happy.  Huxley no doubt borrowed the word from the Sanskrit word for a ritual drink in ancient Indian texts.
